Blues RW Stewart, Penguins C Crosby and Avalanche C Duchene win NHL 3 stars

NEW YORK, N.Y. - St. Louis Blues right-wing Chris Stewart is the NHL's first star of the week.

Stewart had six goals and an assist over four games to help the Blues remain in second place in the Central Division.

He opened the week by scoring twice, his first multi-goal game of the season, in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators last Monday.

He capped the week by recording three goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal, in a 6-0 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was named the second star with two goals and six assists in four appearances as the short-handed Penguins extended their winning streak to seven games.

Colorado centre Matt Duchene took third star honours with two goals and seven assists.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
